Dog "dripping"
Hi Doc
I have a one year old Jack Russel cross female dog, seems quite healthy, but recently I noticed wherever she sits, she actually drips little drops of pee, and I am worried that this can maybe be a problem. She eats a healty diet, and drinks lot of fresh water. Any advice can be helpful

Hi Janette

Have her checked by your vet to make sure she does not have an infection. If not she could be suffering from incontinence. Some female get this. You can manage it by giving her medication. There is a product called Stilboestril. Very effective, but difficult to find as it comes from Australia and there are only certain vets that get it send from there. Ask your vet.
